We came here for our 36th wedding anniversary, after my husband had dined earlier in the week with a large group of visiting Japanese. He was impressed, and believe me, he rarely raves about a restaurant. He insisted on coming here to celebrate and I see why. Our server Rebecca doted on us and is one of those servers who instinctively seems to know when to appear without hovering. We had the corn fritter first plate and two different salads, the watermelon and cherry tomato and the romaine hearts ‘caesar'. We chose entrees from the summer produce menu - grilled salmon and grilled pork. Everything was crazy good and what is even more impressive is that the food is fresh and obtained locally. To top it off, we shared the deadly bread pudding that was melt in your mouth delicious. Portions are very good in size. So glad to have celebrated here!

Just had dinner here after reading some of the reviews. Food is okay but nothing to take time to travel to. Service is ordinary. Ambiance is nothing special. Price is a little high for the quality of the food. I have been to Michelin 3 star restaurants in Chicago, New York and Paris so I am really generous in giving it an average rating. There are several Michelin 1 star restaurants in NYC that is priced the same but exceedingly better food, service and ambiance.

It's a great compliment from our out-of-town guests for such a kind review, especially since KC is very well-known for such a fantastic food scene. We hope to see you again for your next girls weekend in Tulsa!

We went to Juniper for a business meeting. We were seated at a round table which was perfectly sized for our party of six. The restaurant had other patrons, however the noise level was such that we were able to carry on great conversation across the table. A plus as some of the downtown restaurants tend to be noisy. Ordered the pimento cheese sandwich with bacon jam and a side of sweet carrot soup. I cannot say enough about the meal. The bacon jam sounded different however it was amazing. I never thought I would eat carrot as a soup, however that was amazing. The hostess was so kind in watching for our shuttle to pick us up. The waitress was engaging us to ensure we were all pleased with our meal. She even shared insight into the recipes without giving their secrets away. I will definitely be back!

We made reservations to eat before a show at the PAC. The waitress was VERY attentive and asked us if we were going to a play before we could even tell her. She said she would keep and eye on the time for us. My mother in law got a really delicious salad and my sister got onion soup. Drink: We ordered the bees knees and my sister got a Martini (not sure the name) and all 3 were really really good and refreshing. My mother in law doesn't usually drink because she doesn't like the "taste" of alcohol and she really really liked her drink. Food was freshly made. We ordered lamb, duck and rosemary chicken. Out of the three I liked the rosemary chicken the best. It took awhile to get our food but it was worth the wait... freshly made. I would love to dine here again. The wait staff are really good and very well spoken. Tip them well! Easy parking and walk to the PAC before a show.
